    Hey guys I want some experienced opinions, if possible. I have a nice steady source of real engaged traffic from social media sites, all from large accounts with active followings.

    My dilemma here is that I am scared to send it all to my Adsense sites, I never want to put all my eggs in one basket. I have been paid out consistently for about 7 months on Adsense in the 4 figure range, but I am always scared to take the bump up in earnings with them. I know there is tons of PPD, PPL, and CPA networks out there, but I need something solid that pays out weekly or better.

    So basically what I am asking is what do you guys use to diversify your income from social media traffic? I need something that converts well for social media traffic and pays close to Adsense.

    Thanks again to anyone who has a valuable input to this thread as I think there are many others in my same shoes.

    What type of adsense sites do you have? If you have a picture gallery site then its a no no to send traffic to it. (might get banned)

    Collect their emails bro, and you can do whatever you want with them later on, even if you get banned from adsense.

    Small scale social media traffic with Adsense is fine. It's when you rely completely on that traffic and it brings you 4 figures+ monthly that you'll get banned.

    Collecting emails is kind of a silly notion, and I haven't tried an Amazon store so I don't have any authority to speak on that.

    The way I'm monetizing my Twitter accounts now is finding people who have their own Adsense galleries and posting their links and getting paid a % of what I make them. The only risk is if their Adsense gets banned then you won't get paid for that month, but the more gallery sites you're posting for the less risk you have.

    Another obvious thing you can do is use your platform to sell promotions, although sometimes it's tough to find serious buyers because for some reason people tend to think that real Twitter followers gained through a week of promotions should cost the same as fake bot followers.

    That's all I got for you, but I'm always looking for new ways to monetize so I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.
